    Good ride guys! That was a fast ride. Here is data from my ride, I went to grocery store after so the average speed dropped. My average was 26km/h when we reached the end. Check out my 41.1 km Ride on Strava: http://app.strava.com/activities/161064184

    The ride was excellent. Weather was just right with very few bugs. All riders were faster than me but had the courtesy to initially let me lead. Thank you guys for the good ride!

      Weather forecast is playing with me. The ride is still on unless it rains heavily before and when we start.

      I won't have an opportunity to ride it before the event. If someone knows the condition please post here. Thank you.

    I rode this route last Wednesday. The bugs were bad. It's a good idea to bring glasses. Also, there was construction just south of Edward Gardens, very big/bumpy rocks I could not continue on my road bike. Perhaps they will be finished paving the trail when this ride happens.
